Olivier is a very talented musician and an expert at music theory. He hss mastered his chops at rock guitar. I did a few lessons with him and was very impressed with his enthusiasm and patience at imparting his knowledge. Certainly going to continue with him and I encourage anyone else who wants to learn guitar. Most importantly, Olivier is a thorough professional and a vrry sweet guy.

I've been taking classes with Olivier for a couple of years now and my guitar proficiency is beyond all my expectations! I've able to start playing with a band this year, solo or chords, and even write my own material using the skills I've learned. But what I've learned is not just technical, I've also learned to have a fun and enjoyable approach to playing in general. I am actually looking forward to my guitar practice at home. I learned to love every note, and the fact that there are no wrong notes. Olivier is the best teacher to not only learn guitar, but to learn to find your voice in music:)
